Well. This is VERY intriguing. And not what I thought "Bad Monkeys" would be about at ALL!

I'm intrigued.. The story sounds much more interesting than I would have thought. Looks like I will have to learn to read again! I have gone through the house and removed all pictures with eyes on. Problem, if the book has eyes on it, should I buy it? I will keep my eyes open (not a pun) for any monkeys on the wall stuff, and you can be sure that I will take a picture if I find anything, but I'm a long way from London. If they make a movie I think it would be a bit like Gattaca but more ...

James, I've come up with a solution. All you need to do is take a piece of black electrician's tape and put it over the eyes. Problem solved.

I love the artwork. I may have missed this....but did he illustrate his book, as well?

Very well done! I'll have to check this one out. Loved the Chronicles of Narnia. Ferrari expressed himself in such a way as to inspire while showing what inspired him. I like his three lessons learned! Reality check!

Hi Lori. Mark Ferrari here. (Author of The Book of Joby) In regard to your question about whether I illustrated my own book, the answer is, not really. There's a little dragon on the cover breething fire on an 'O' in the title, which was clipped out of a larger piece of my art - (in fact, the piece of art shown in Paul's video interview with me). But the larger piece of my art once slated to decorate the cover was vetoed at the last minute when buyers for the big book chains told Tor, (the...

Hi SuBe. Glad you liked the three lessons. They really are invaluable. I wear a helmet almost everywhere now: to bed, in the shower ... ;-) But seriously, I had a blast doing this interview with Paul, and am glad you found some inspiration there. If you do check out the book, I hope you'll tell us what you thought - good or bad. All reconnaisance is good reconnaisance. ... (did I spell that wright?) :-)

Very nice. Some people never learn the lessons of life, let alone be able to define them. Keep up the good work.

Although we didn't get to it in the interview, Mark's got another novel in the works. We'll have more on it in the future!

We went to Barnes and Nobel and purchased your first book...at first we could not find it so we asked for assistance...you'll be happy to hear the lady who helped us said "oh that one, I remember it clearly, it stands out because of the unusual cover" and indeed she found it for us! St. Joby, just out of curiosity, have you read The Stand by Stephen King? It is about the fight between good and evil too...nightmare material.

Re: Mark Ferrari Interview

St. Joby ·
Hey SuBe, thanks for giving my little tale a try! Hope you enjoy the read. I have not, in fact, ever read The Stand. Joby's quest does get a little grim at times, ... well, pretty DARN grim at times, but there's humor and wonder in there too. I have never liked books that just drag you through the mud for 90 miles only to leave you in the middle of a bog at the end ''cause that's the human condition,' and I hope not to have written one. I think the end of a tale should leave you with...

Jane Porter seems to be an easy person to interview. I like the way you put the link above to the authors info. Good job, Paul.

Interesting interview. I read about her in the local paper, as well! It wasn't until I checked out her website that I discovered she also writes romance novels.

I love Jane. As a member of our RWA (Romance Writers of America) chapter, I've had the opportunity to meet her on a few occasions. She is a very sweet, giving person and a great writer. Not only does she write well, she helps other writers with her workshops. I can't wait to get her new book.

Yeah, I saw lots of articles geared towards helping other writers on her website.

I was excited when she mentioned the Taylor Young book. I'm hoping I'll have a chance to talk to her when it comes out.

Jane is a very talented author and a lovely person as well. I've possibly read everything Jane has written and Odd Mom Out was fantistic. Can't wait for her next book.......

How refreshing to hear an author promoting using the library. Good interview and filiming guys. Keep 'em coming. Now, how bout a little more about the actual book? Have you read them?

Re: An Interview with Emma Bull and Will Shetterly

Paul Gude ·
Yes, I enjoyed both books! "Territory" is what Emma likes to call a "Secret History" book. The events *could* have happened the way they're described, and history wouldn't reflect it. It's a nice mix of old-west and fantasy. "The Gospel of the Knife" explores a very interesting idea regarding religious traditions, set in what is an interesting modern fantasy landscape. You can actually check out "The Gospel of the Knife" online, here: http://qwertyranch.blogspot.co...gospel-of-knife.html...

I talked with Emma Bull and Will Shetterly as they swung through town on their book-signing tour for Territory and Gospel of the Knife. ...the old adage goes rules are made to be broken- WHEN you can pull it off. And man, does Shetterly ever pull it...

I got a chance to talk to Jane Porter about her new novel, Odd Mom Out. Porter's tale of a mother and daughter's journey to "normalcy" is keenly emotional and truly uplifting.  -Maria Hatton, Booklist. For more on Jane Porter, check out her web site.

I got a chance to talk to author Mark Ferrari about The Book of Joby, and his transition from artist to writer. With its winning combination of King Arthur and the Book of Job, this book deserves to stand on the bookshelf next to C.S. Lewis'...

I met with Matt Ruff to discuss his latest heroine, Jane Charlotte, and her world of Bad Monkeys. A recent New York Times Book Review said the book is, "...highly entertaining. It moves fast and keeps surprising you." Special thanks to Queen Anne...
